About Me

The focus of my work is to enable you to have the best life you can. It is important to me to offer you a safe space where I can support you to express yourself, even if you do not know how to begin to speak about your experiences and particularly if you are new to counselling. How I actually work with you will be unique. I aim to ensure that I gain the fullest understanding of you and of what concerns you. For some people, this will take them through an emotional journey towards appreciating who they already are, and for others, this will involve my being alongside them as they explore and undertake very important change.
There are times when we all experience anxiety and emotional distress, feeling anxious and unhappy in everyday life. Counselling and working together through times of difficulty, can help you to see things more clearly, possibly from a different view-point. This can enable you to focus on your feelings and your life at present with a goal to facilitating positive changes in your life.
My overall aim is to strengthen your own ability to identify and implement solutions so that you no longer need me and feel empowered to develop and manage your life in a way that is positive for you.
